Enemy Components from the Philippines are adding 2 new riders to their international pro team. In 2017 Keelan Phillips from the UK and Dan Hennig from Germany/Switzerland are going to represent the brand in Europe. Furthermore Joel Schallhorn is joining "La Familia" which is more like a flow-rider team. Paulo Gepulango dropped us a few official words as well:
"It’s a great honor for us that you guys represent our humble team in both the international and local scene.
We also added some few riders to our Enemy family. These guys showed much support for our brand and they will continue to help us with our brand recognition and promotion.
And lastly, thank you so much to all the riders who submitted thier profiles and videos. You can still submit your progression videos to our fb page from time to time. Who knows, you might be added to our team soon!"

A new day and a new edit from France! This time we get to see session in Toulouse. Great to see many riders out on their local spots despite some colder weather. Keep riding guys! Towards the middle of the video there is a cool street flat line and don't miss Joachim Sontag in the background of the last scenes - hitchhiker with his hands behind his back. Enjoy!
Riders: Matthieu Bonnecuelle, Joachim Sontag, Maxime Cassagne, Thomas Noyer, Rémy Dunoyer
Thanks to Maxime Cassagne for dropping us his latest edit. He and a whole crew of French riders had some winter sessions in Bordeaux. While Bordeaux is pretty far in the south of France it does get chilly there during the Winter. Recently a private indoor skatepark opened where some of the footage was filmed. It's called Hangar Darwin if you are interested. The video is feature a bunch of riders including some of the French flatland ladies! Check it out!

This year Germany will have an own Flatland Championship. At the moment 5 stops are planned but most dates are yet to be announced. The series kicks off in February with the annual Fight the Winter contest in Göttingen. Below you'll find a rough schedule.
The Japanese Inspire magazine is creating great video portraits of interesting people. Their latest video is featuring Moto and he explains flatland and his career in the sport. The video is not only made for the hardcore flatland riders out there but for a broader audience. They also added English subtitles for the non-Japanese speaking people out there. Enjoy!
Keelan is living the Nose Manual dream! Check this video from a recent christmas session. It was all filmed on the same day and obviously brakeless. A few days ago Keelan also posted a video with a freestyle football player. This one was reposted by the People Are Awesome Facebook page and got half a million views. Well done guys!
Hidenori Ishizaki is quite a machine! This is his video part from Akira Okamura's ZAI DVD 12. You may know his creative backwheel combos from previous videos. Super technical, super hard but also looking very dialed. We are wondering what else is hiding on the latest ZAI DVD (trailer). You can get it from digit in Japan.
